Jamie Otis gets candid about her chemical pregnancy and takes to Instagram to share an emotional post
'Married at First Sight' star Jamie Otis took to Instagram to share an emotional post about how she suffered from a chemical pregnancy. Otis is a nurse and her midwife also confirmed that she had to undergo a chemical pregnancy.
Otis posted a picture of her with her child Henley Grace and wrote, "Sorry I've been MIA, this very bizarre positive pregnancy test then negative test then faint positive lines gave me hope that Gracie was going to become a big sis in 9 months, but the night before last I began having terrible contraction-like pains & spotting. Then over the night full blown everything - if you know what I mean."
The "bizarre positive pregnancy test" refers to a photograph which she had added on Instagram. She was seen holding up what looked to be a pregnancy test, but the test reads negative. However, Otis was hoping and praying for a different result and added, "If I stare long enough I see the faintest '+' sign...Do you see it or am I just cray cray?!" In the photograph of her and Henley, she wrote, "I don't know why some people have it seemingly SO easy to get preggers & carry their babies to term and others struggle."
She also went on to say that she was "so so thankful" for her daughter and also her husband Doug Hehner. Even the episode chemical pregnancy didn't dampen her spirit to try for another baby, as she revealed, "I am on a mission to make Gracie a big sis now." In 2016, the couple announced that they had tragically lost their son when Otis was around four months pregnant and took to Instagram to share, "Our Baby Hehner was just too beautiful for earth. I love him so much - ALWAYS will - and can't wait to meet him in heaven one day."
She also thanked her loyal fans and followers for their support and love and said, "I appreciate you, your prayers, your thoughts & words of love for me & my little family more than you'll ever know!"
As reported by Healthline, chemical pregnancies "account for 50 to 75 percent of all miscarriages," and this can also happen in the early stages of pregnancy too "before ultrasounds can detect a fetus, but not too early for a pregnancy test to detect levels of hCG."
